changing from: <driver name='file'/> to: <driver name='tap2'/> makes the
domain start without QEMU.
However I see much better performance with QEMU (close to dom0, tested
using simple dd writes) than with tap2 driver. Is that expected?
What's best practise to file based storage on latest CentOS6-xen (Kernel
3.18.17, Xen 4.4.2-7)
Are there any guides around running QEMU on CentOS6-xen as non-root user?
